There are several different ways to pay your monthly mortgage payments or to make a contribution to any outstanding arrears that may have accrued.
If your payment is not received in the month it is due, this could lead to a monthly arrears charge of £30 being debited to your account and your credit rating being affected.
If you pay by Direct Debit or Internal Transfer (paying your monthly mortgage payment from a Skipton savings account) then you may receive 0.25% discount on your mortgage interest rate. If you pay by any other method the discount will not apply.
You can make debit card payments by calling Skipton Direct on 0345 850 1711. Please note that we do not accept credit card payments.
If you pay Direct Debit you may be eligible for a 0.25% discount on your mortgage interest rate (terms and conditions apply - please ask us for further details). If the Direct Debit is subsequently cancelled, the discount will be removed.
